Jonesboro traffic committee brings on new member

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Jonesboro's Traffic Operations Engineer, Mark Nichols, will now be a part of the city's permanent Traffic Control Review Committee. The committee mainly focuses on the safety of neighborhoods in Jonesboro.

"Committee reviews requests from citizens to look at things such as speed reductions, a stop sign added or a sign to change," said Nichols. "This committee would review that and make a decision along those lines from the request of the citizen."

The committee has been a part of the engineering department for some time, but recently Nichols has joined the committee.

"We may handle 10 to 20 different issues and sometimes the consensus is to revise the signing," said Nichols.

If you have a traffic concern in your neighborhood you can contact city hall or the engineering department at (870)932-2438.
